Sabal uresana

Hardy silver sabal! This silver-blue palm makes a wonderful and refreshing addition to the hot southern garden. For us it is the bluest of all the trunk palms. The southeastern Palm and Exotic Plant Society of Decatur Georgia reports Sabal uresana to be extremely cold hardy. Leaves look their best when given full sun and placed against black-green evergreens. Pot grown plants of this species do not color up well and individual plants exhibit varying degrees of blue/silver leaf coloration. The plant that are currently being offered have olive/bluish tinted leaves and once they get growing vigorously in the ground should develop a stronger blue/silver leaf coloration but we can not guarantee what degree of leaf coloration the plants will eventually exhibit.

Notes and observations about this plant

Absolutely no leaf damage whatsoever
I have one of these in the ground that I purchased as a 3-gal plant in the fall of 2010. Jan/Feb of 2011, we had the coldest nights in 20+ years for our area (ca 13 degrees F) and this plant came through with absolutely no leaf damage whatsoever. (Posted on 10/9/2012 by Troy Hibbitts).
Beautiful, cold hardy palm.
We have had 4 of these in the ground for about 5 years in Southern NM. Record cold for 3 days in a row in early February (lowest night was 0). Only small amount of leaf burn on 2, the others were unaffected!! Beautiful, cold hardy palm. (Posted on 6/25/2011 by David Lyman).
At shipping time these plants will be shipped with only one or two leaves left intact, because the record cold of Jan. 2010 burned many of the outer leaves. However these plants have a large and well established root ball and will flush new leaves rapidly once the season progresses. (Posted on 2/23/2010 by Yucca Do Staff).
